re: Poker & $600 NLHE Full Ring: $600 NLHE : Boat vs Quads?
So it was a limped pot of about 5 players seeing the flop, I believed if sb had a pocket pair her would have raised.
SB led out with about a $25 bet on the flop, it was folded around to me and I reraised to about $80. He calls. Pot is about $200.
On turn he again leads out and puts in about $100, I reraise hard putting in about $700 expecting him to call with any holdings. He pauses and thinks and finally calls.
On river he instantly shoves his remaining chips, it was somewhere between $1200 and $1800 and I had him covered. Didn't feel good about the hand. Figured he either had the 6 or was bluffing and I don't think he would have bluffed on river because if I had a hand, that 6 probably meant I now had a monster.
I thought about it for about a minute and finally flipped over my 44, and said nice 6. The table oohed and awed about how it was such a bad river for me. Villian says he's glad I folded because he only had a straight but refuses to show, only showing one card for a 3.
I think if he would have said he was bluffing then he'd show entire bluff, not just half to make it plausible. I'm almost positive he had 63, which would also explain why he'd play the hand so hard given top pair + gut shot on flop, trips plus gut shot on turn and then 4 of a kind on river.
Furthermore, I think if he did have a flopped straight he would have 3bet me on the turn, but more importantly, would never have just insta shoved on river once any initial pair on flop meant his straight was now crushed.
